Taste of Sagada: Homestay’s Diner

After the amazing yet tiring cave connection,  a quick shower and a good dinner is  badly needed by the team (Len, Jun, Kim and Violet).

It’s almost 8:30 and Sagada curfew is at 9 PM. Goodness… Homestay’s diner is still open!

Food: Chicken BBQ

Review: The place is all wooden and it feels staying in a log cabin. The food was not so good, the chicken is originally fried (cooked earlier) and  BBQ is just spread into it to give it a taste. The pack is hungry so who cares? Good thing is that the male host is very kind, entertaining and accommodating plus the fact that Milo (hot choco) is only 20 pesos with unlimited creamer is really great. 🙂

Outside the diner is also awesome, they had bonfire area.

Taste of Sagada: Lemon House Pie

Sweet Love for Pies. A delightful craving and addiction.

A heartbreak caused that it’s too far (from home) to grab anytime.

After the lunch out in Salt & Pepper, Violet insisted to look for the Lemon House Pie, well, Len agreed. It’s a long walk to find it but the agony of walking is bearable, once savor the heavenly taste of the pies. Oh droooling here! Teleportation please! Huhuhu! Missing it too much already. I love you, egg pie! 😥

Review: Awesome interiors. Love the low-rise table and even the dining area inside. The pies are great (Violet can eat the whole thing all day and wishing to be eating one at this very moment)!

Taste of Sagada: Salt & Pepper

One should look up for a sign.

Arriving in Sagada by noontime is perfect to roam around, find something interesting and look for a good place to eat. Going down the slope, one should look up for the sign of Salt & Pepper. It was a fortunate event that while walking and taking pictures, Violet looked up and found in black-and-white the name of this restaurant, and its catchy tagline.

History: Salt and Pepper are the original seasoning of all the foods in Sagada.

The nearby houses with chimneys, the slope (up and down), the blooming flowers at the veranda, and the locals of Sagada on a Monday (lunchtime) – a simple life.

On the Menu: Honey Lemon Inutom and Mushroom Inutom. “Inutom” means chicken.

Reminder: Waiting Time takes about 30 minutes or more.

Review: It’s a self-service restaurant. Get the condiments and water at the center shelf (they have plenty of drinking cups).The food was great. It taste special and original. The honey lemon is a delight (though no other part aside from thigh-leg). The veranda is awesome, even the interiors and the rice grains over the counter is very unique.
